Important Move-In Dates

move-in 2021 important dates

    We are looking forward to Move-In 2021 and Welcome Week!

    To ensure that all of our first-year and second-year Cards have the opportunity to move into their new spaces before Welcome Week activities commence, we will be prioritizing first- and second-year Cards to move in on Wednesday, August 18, and Thursday, August 19. If you are a member of a first-year, second-year, or upper-level LLC or TC, you will have the opportunity to schedule your move-in for a time as early as 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, August 17! 

    Our "Schedule Move-In" and "Early Arrival Request" forms will launch in the Housing Portal on July 8 at 10:00 a.m. On the form, you will be able to choose an available appointment slot automatically. If you need to change your appointment slot, you will be able to log back into the form to make that change, as well. Full details will be emailed to you when the scheduling form launches.

    **If you need to book a flight for a particular move-in date right away since you live out-of-state and will be flying in for move-in, we will be more than happy to make sure you get the move-in date and time you need, to the best of our ability. Please email us at  with your student ID number and specific situation so that we can discuss your options together.**

    In the meantime, be sure to check out a few of our FAQs at the bottom of this page, and email us at with questions you might have!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Why is move-in scheduled this year?

    A: Students and families involved in Move-In 2020 overwhelmingly expressed that a scheduled move-in allowed for a more positive move-in experience. An appointment schedule allowed students and families to unload more efficiently and navigate move-in traffic, receive more one-on-one assistance from Campus Housing staff and volunteers, and much more. We would like to continue with this system for Move-In 2021, although appointment slots per hour will vary by building capacity and need.  

    Q: I am a first-year or second-year student. Do I have to move in on Wednesday or Thursday since they are designated for first- and second-year students?

    A: No. We have created the opportunity for first- and second-year students to move in on Wednesday/Thursday so that they may arrive in time to take advantage of Cardinal Kickoff and the commencement of Welcome Week events.

    Q: I am a third-year or fourth-year student, a transfer student, or a graduate student. Why do I have to wait until Friday to move in?

    A: We would like to ensure that first-year and second-year students are able to move in prior to Cardinal Kickoff and the commencement of Welcome Week events. To ensure that this process runs smoothly, we kindly ask that you schedule a move-in appointment for Friday-Sunday. We will have plenty of appointment options on these dates to ensure that your move-in is just as efficient and positive as that of our first- and second-years.

    Q: I am in an LLC/TC. Do I have to move in on Tuesday (or Wednesday for Kurz and CP LLC/TC students)?

    A: No. We hope you will take advantage of scheduled early move-in for LLC/TC members and would like to give you this exclusive opportunity. However, you can choose to move in on an alternative move-in date based on your status as a first-year/second-year or a third-year/fourth year.

    Q: I cannot move in during the times listed above. What should I do?

    A: Please contact Campus Housing at housing@louisville.edu to discuss your specific circumstances and needs.

    Q: Can I change my move-in appointment that I select?

    A: Yes. You can re-access the “Schedule Move-In” form in order to change your move-in date after the form launches on July 8 at 10:00 a.m.

    Q: How late can I wait to schedule my move-in once the form launches on July 8 at 10:00 a.m.?

    A: While we encourage you to schedule your move-in sooner rather than later to ensure a wider availability of appointment options, we also understand that sometimes, you may not know the exact details of your arrival until closer to move-in. We kindly ask all move-in participants to schedule their move-in at least 48 hours in advance of their intended move-in date/time.
